Injection Therapy

What it is

Injection Therapy is the use of anti-inflammatory agents which are administered into joints and soft tissues for pain relief and reduction of swelling. It has been an accepted part of the practice of Physiotherapists trained in the technique since 1997.

Common Conditions

Theoretically, any joint can be injected but common injures treated with this are approach are osteoarthritis, tendonitis, e.g in the shoulder, knee or elbow, fasciitis (inflammation of connective tissue) and joint swelling.

 

What to expect

After assessment and diagnosis, your Physiotherapist will contact your GP to seek permission based on your medical history, for an injection to be administered. The procedure will then take place at the Clinic. In some cases it is advisable not to drive afterwards, if this is the case your therapist will make you aware beforehand.

Other services that can support your treatment

Injection therapy is often used in conjunction with Physiotherapy and Chiropractic treatment and rehabilitation.

Here’s What Our Clients Think of Us

For Karla (Hypnotherapist)

“I was here on 3-day work experience. The first day I was nervous but there was a ‘family atmosphere’ where everyone was really welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute and would love to come again.”

Charlie Edwards

For Vicky (Vim and Vigour)

“I am now nearing the end of my second course of Vim and Vigour sessions. I must say, along with thoroughly enjoying myself I have noticed an improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility over this period. My thanks go to Vicky who has focused the activities towards my particular needs and has also raised my awareness of how to combat the ageing issues my body is facing. Thank you.”

Karen McDonald

For Jo (Physiotherapy)

“I have to say that in all my years, working and coaching, and being treated myself, that was one of the finest pieces of work I’ve ever witnessed. My daughter is a very complex, head strong young lady. I am truly in awe of the way Jo took on the mental and physical challenges in a way she could accept. Very grateful for all you’ve done”         

Tony Hillman

 For Jo Roberts (Equipment Based Pilates)

“Over the last 2 years of rehab, I’ve done lots of different exercises, some extreme that have worked me hard. This is the only one that I’ve had to ask to stop mid-session to get a drink of water, that’s how hard it pushes you, do not underestimate this fantastic form of exercise.”
